Fulham has sealed a deal that will lead to more electric-charging facilities at the English Premier League football club’s Craven Cottage home.

Gridserve will be Fulham’s electric vehicle partner for two seasons, covering the 2023-24 and 2024-25 campaigns.

Gridserve will provide the club with a fleet of Tesla Model Y electric cars and install 10 charging points at both Craven Cottage and the training ground at Motspur Park.

Each point will be capable of up to 22kW alternating current charging. Chargers at the training ground will be available for visitors to use with a contactless payment, but it is not clear yet whether the same option will be available at the stadium.

“The club has made significant and demonstrable progress towards sustainability in recent years, and we strongly believe that sustainability partnerships are key to delivering change at scale,” Jon Don-Carolis, Fulham’s commercial director, said.

Rob Buckland, Gridserve’s chief leasing officer, added: “We hope the partnership will not only help decarbonise the team’s activities off the pitch, but also encourage fans to make the switch, in turn helping us to move the needle on climate change.”
